      BrotherGoose's Lucid Workbook

      I'm going to start a workbook here too. I'll use this one for all my lucid experiences and the other for non-lucid dreaming, recall, sleep patterns etc.

      Reality Checks:

      - Breathing through plugged nose.
      - Hand examination and finger push.
      - When Iím using a mirror I will typically tap it, expecting ripples of some sort in a dream.

      Dream Signs:

      - Crowded, exciting places (concerts/amusement parks etc.)
      - Boats
      - Friends that I donít often see, but have seen recently
      - Car accidents (although this usually wakes me up)

      Short-Term Goals:

      - Sustain and explore lucid dreams more thoroughly
      - Increased stability/vividity
      - Continue to progress with recall
      - Establish more reliable dream signs

      Long-Term Goals:

      - Explore my own psyche
      - Create my own dreamscapes that I can visit repeatedly

      Lucid/Dream Recall History:

      - 3-5 Lucid/Semi-Lucid. Nothing lasting more than a minute. Only one was not Ďblurryí.
      - Recall is improving rapidly. 2-3 dreams a night is typical (although less in the last few days). Page long DJs typical.

      Current Technique:

      - My current technique (although at a certain point they seem to blend together to a degreeÖ) is DILD. Occasionally I will dabble with repeating some mantras before bed (MILD) with mixed results.
      - I have tried WILD, SSILD, and FILD multiple times each, both at the beginning of the night and w/ WBTB. In almost all occasions this results in me not becoming lucid and making it harder for me to sleep. For example, on some nights Iíll be very tired and decide to try to WILD. In addition to it not working I will then spend 1+ hours to fall asleep. Iíve since dropped these almost entirely, planning on trying them again once I am more familiar with the lucid dream state.

      My most recent working points have been to focus on improving my sleeping habits (hopefully the habits will stick). I wake up each morning at 630 (although I may need to move this forward to allow for more DJ time) meaning Iíve had to more my bedtime from 12 to 1030. One of the biggest resistance points for me is that between work/commute/gym I now have <2 hours free time a day.

      * Normal Task
      * Basic Task
      * Advanced Task

      Week 1 : Recall 7 dreams. Tell a DC you're dreaming. Short flight.
      Week 2 : Do a proper WBTB. Stabilize the dream using senses. Use Telekinesis.
      Week 3 : Try a WILD out. Levitate or do a short flight. Fly at supersonic speed (or close enough.)
      Week 4 : Recall 5 dreams in a single night (fragments count.) Look in your pockets, see what you find! Summon a DC.
      Week 5 : Successfully DEILD. Eat something. Teleport.
      Week 6 : Rewind the entire day in your head before going to sleep. Play music, which song is it? Tell or ask a DC to do something for you.
      Week 7 : Visit Dream World Academy, Find your Dream Weapon
      Week 8, 9 : Visit Dream World Academy, Find other class friends!

      I'll be starting Week 1 now. Aiming to complete the normal tasks on this run through as well as any basic tasks that I am able to.

      So far this week (last night) I was able to recall 2 dreams although they were much less clear than they often are.

      Remembered a total of 9 dreams last week, however this included 3 nights with no recall (the worst for me since I started keeping a dream journal). Sleep habits had a lot to do with this. Also, last weekend I had my first experience that I would describe as a true lucid dream! Had moderate amounts of control and was able to stabilize. Will post to my online DJ as I have time. Continuing on to week 2 goal - Do a proper WBTB.

      Through a combination of pseudo-mandatory work parties as well as smoking a couple times for the first time in month I have had a terrible month for recall so far. No recall on 8/15 days so far. Pretty much the worst I've been since I started keeping a dream journal. However, that is all going to change! 2015 will be the year of the lucid dream and so I would like to finish 2014 with a big push so that I can start the new year on my front foot.

      Therefore, for the remainder of the month, I will be changing (and being stricter) about my nighttime routine, I will remain (relatively) sober (other than another fairly mandatory work event), and I will revamp my All Day Awareness practice.

      My new nighttime routine will include going to my room :30 earlier to meditate (previous practice was sporadic) and waking up for 10 minutes after 4.5 hours into sleep to meditate/WBTB each night.

      Additionally I'm going to start transferring over my DJ to here, most recent first, to try and get some help identifying some dream signs. Whether or not I continue doing this into the new year remains to be seen. I really like the idea of audio recordings, we'll see though.
